Asian Tea House used to be a favourite location for special occasions for my wife and I, until recently when we decided to celebrate a birthday with some friends.nFrom the moment we were served our starters we were hurried and rushed to the point that we felt that we were impeding. The 'beef' dish seemed more like a vegetarian dish for the amount of meat that could be found amongst the veg. nWe were still chewing our main course as we were ushered out the door as the table was needed. Won't be going back anytime soon I'm afraid.

This used to be my favourite Chinese restaurant in Galway, but the last 2 occasions were disappointing. The service is rushed. The quality of the food has deteriorated. I ordered 'Indonesian Kari Ikan' - it was supposed to be monkfish curry. What I got was curry sauce bulked up with large bits of chopped tomato and possibly only 5 small pieces of monkfish - cost €21. The waiter's don't know their wine list and cannot therefore make suggestions. What bugged me most of all is that the waitress took on the wine service and created a "hurry-up" vibe by roughly emptying the bottle into our glasses to get us to buy another. And this was before we got handed our starters! I wouldn't recommend this restaurant as its my 2nd time in a row to feel disappointed and overcharged for what is basically very common and average. I shall be on the look out for somewhere better in the future!

I am a huge fan of Asian food, having been to asia many times and tasting true authentic asian, Food that is, first hand Such as Raman or Fresh Sushi in Japan. However since my travels to Asia, I have found it hard to find the same quality of food in Galway. Having gone pretty much to every asian restaurant in Galway to meet my taste buds requirements and not been satisfied has been a regular occurance for me. Until I was invited to have a meal with some friends in the Asian Tea House. Of course like every Asian restaurant that I have dined at, I always look for ;Raman' which for those who are unsure what that dish is, It's a noodle dish in a soup, traditionally with pork but is sometimes served with chicken or seafood. and if made right, is Amazing..... and when I do discover this dish on a menu I usually have to try it. So of course this is what I did in the Asian Tea House. First impression, The size of the dish would meet the requirements of even a sumo wrestler. I was really impressed with the appearance of the dish, and was reborn when I took that first bite, the chicken was cooked by a god, and the noodles were created and sliced by a samurai. and marinated in soulful soup that even James brown would 'Get up' from his grave and tell everyone how he 'Feel's good'. It looks like I don't have to spend 1000 euro on a flight to Japan to get real Raman, all I have to do is go to the Asian Tea House. It sure is a man's world :-)

Just as an FYI, this restaurant no longer takes bookings made through menupages. I made a booking 2 weeks in advance and then tried to get in contact with the restaurant to confirm. They also don't check their social media pages. So when I arrived myself and my boyfriend were turned away. The waiter was apologetic but I feel this wasn't good enough. We were told that many groups were making bookings though this site but not showing up. I provided my email address and phone number so at the very least they could check once a week to see who was booking to let them know.

I choose the special - sea bream and found it to be inedible. way too spicy despite the on menu rating. I like Asian food and fish dishes but could not recommend this one. My wifes meal was ok but it didn't warrant the reputation or price. Spoke to staff about spicy dish and they were totally disinterested. Restaurant wasn't busy so no excuses there.

Ordered the special - mesa bream. Was extremely spicy despite the menu rating. Sauce and veg didn't complement the fish. Food inedible. My wifes meal was ok but didn't justify the reputation or the price

Had been really looking forward to eating here after all the great reviews but it didn't live up to expectations. Service was pleasant but very slow. We had booked a late table and by the time our orders had been taken and our starters arrived we had been there over 45 minutes. We were absolutely starving and some prawn crackers, bread or even green tea would have made a big difference but we were offered nothing and even had to remind them to bring us water with our ordered drinks. The starters-wontons, tom yum soup, fish cake were all very nice. We were in good form then but then had to wait at least another 30 mins for our main course so again were hungry and irritated. There was a big group there that night so maybe that's why there was a delay but still not acceptable. Mains were mixed quality. My beef dish was v nice, the seafood was only ok, while the pork was too salty. It was nearly 10.30pm at this stage so we felt it was too late for desserts and coffees and we couldn't face another long wait so we finished up. I'd be slow to return as there are a lot of other places I'd like to try in Galway. I would order take away from there though as the food I had was v tasty.

After reading the reviews about this restaurant my wife and I decided to book a table for Mothers Day , as we were in Galway for the weekend.When we arrived the place was very busy and we were given a table straight away.We both ordered soup for starters, Butternut squash & mushroom soup for me and Chicken with spinagh for my wife. They were both delicous and full of flavours.For mains I ordered Randang Pork Belly and was advised it would be hot this was fine by me I like hot spicy food, my wife ordered Teppanyaki Chicken.When the mains arrived they looked fine and tasted fine until we both tasted the meat.My pork belly was hard and chewey it was overcooked.my wifes chicken was burnt black on one side which they had turned over to conceal the burnt side, my wife turned every piece of chicken over and every piece was burnt black on one side. The waitress noticed the burnt chicken and apoligised and asked would she like to order somthing else , my wife declined,then another man came over to apoligise and offered to get her somthing else and she declined again.The flavours of the food was really nice but both dishes were ruined by overcooking. Maybe it was the pressure of being so busy on Mothers Day , but the food should not have been sent out of the kitchen burnt.They did not charge for my wifes meal.We wont be back

Had the absolute pleasure of visiting this restaurant recently and was really impressed. The Asian Tea House is the first Asian restaurant I have ever visited that completely understands and caters for Coeliacs. There is a separate Coeliac menu and the staff are knowledgeable about the condition. The dish I ordered took a little while to prepare but I was assured that this was because the Coeliac friendly food is prepared to order, using separate utensils and in fresh oil. The butternut squash soup is just divine. and the main dish that I chose was quite simple but was cooked beautifully, as well as being pretty good value for money. I definitely be back and will be more adventurous next time.

I have eaten in the Asian Tea House several times, and its by far the best Asian restaurant I've eaten in. The staff and very friendly and courteous and the service is excellent. The food I think is fabulous. The Vietnamese spring rolls were beautiful and so was the Vietnamese lime pork. Will be going back again.

dont really know what everybody is raving about, it is a classic asian restaurant with the same standard as the other places, maybe a little better layout on the decor, but still nothing more than any other i have been in galway. I had the most terrible seafood fried rice (with frozen seafood cocktail)

I can only add to the good reviews. this place covers an awful lot of Asia in its menu but seems to pull it off very well. Fu Chuck Rolls were new to me, tasted a bit like deep fried won tons, I enjoyed them. Mussels were good, although maybe the sauce was a bit overpowering. Won tons and spring rolls went down well. Main courses were big, but also high on quality and presentation. I had a radang pork belly curry, which was beatifully spiced and flavourful with good well cooked meat. No complaints from any of my companions. Good variety, good value, good service, good quality, good room, what more can you ask for?
